Abstract
Calibration of the LiDAR sensor with RGB camera finds its usage in many application fields from enhancing image classification to the environment perception and mapping. This paper presents a pipeline for mutual pose and orientation estimation of the mentioned sensors using a coarse to fine approach. Previously published methods use multiple views of a known chessboard marker for computing the calibration parameters, or they are limited to the calibration of the sensors with a small mutual displacement only. Our approach presents a novel 3D marker for coarse calibration which can be robustly detected in both the camera image and the LiDAR scan. It also requires only a single pair of camera-LiDAR frames for estimating large sensors displacement. Consequent refinement step searches for more accurate calibration in small subspace of calibration parameters. The paper also presents a novel way for evaluation of the calibration precision using projection error.
